I was going through a backlog of facebook posts tonight (should have been building instead) when I came across this awesome post from LEGO earlier this week. It was just too cool not to share. LEGO designers have apparently constructed a life-size version of The Hobbit "An Unexpected Gathering" set.
This massive display of LEGO Bag End engineering is apparently made up of over two million bricks and took at least 3,000 hours to assemble. It's so detailed it apparently even has the ability to produce real smoke from the chimney!
I wonder where this little wonder will pop up on display to the public. I would love to get a closer look.
UPDATE: LEGO has posted a video on the lengthy construction process for Bag End.
